Re: The New Retail Thread

^Say what you want about Sam Adams/Boston Beer, but this has the potential to be a pretty neat space. Far better than the sunken, cavern-like Hillstone.

Re: Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

While I wouldn't go THAT far, I do think Gillette is the very definition of average. It definitely gets worse than Gillette in the NFL. But it's not anywhere close to the best. It has neither the...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

I've seen them relatively regularly on the third track at Sullivan. There's a video somewhere in this thread I think of the train stopping at DTX and even opening the doors (on the wrong side) with...

Re: The New Retail Thread

Very good to know. I've enjoyed the trip out the Charlton to visit the brewery (it's a beautiful property). I'll continue to do that and rotate between the outdoor beer gardens and patios around...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Cool, I think this rumor has been swirling a bit. It'll be the 3rd airline with scheduled (seasonal) A380 service to BOS (Emirates and BA both fly them to BOS now).



I've actually flown both...

Re: The New Retail Thread

True. Didn't think of that/still haven't been there.



It'd be great. They're certainly producing enough at their facility to do it. Perhaps their Back Bay pop up beer garden is the closest...

Re: Brutalist Revival

It's the government owned examples I'm specifically concerned about. Not because the city or state will flip them to developers, but because the lack of investment in upkeep will eventually lead to a...

Re: MXD Residential Tower | 135 Broadway | Kendall Square

Agreed. I believe it was mentioned by someone in this or another Kendall project thread, but there are already way too many "plazas" and "green spaces" scattered throughout the neighborhood....

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Dumb Millennial question - do they take cards, or is it cash only for the fare?

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Probably. Without some sort of significant additional financial incentive, it's hard to see any airline launching Boston-Basel. It's an hour and 15 minutes from Zurich airport which has a direct...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Haven't seen it, and honestly... I hate it. I was willing to look past how fat it was from that angle, but the "State Street" rendered there makes it look even squatter.

Re: Flashing Yellow Turn Arrows

You can't turn right there if you're heading toward Davis. The observations about the traffic light are accurate. If you're heading toward Davis, it's left turn only. Cedar is one way from Highland...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I agree with you. And to be fair, I'm not anti fines/enforcement for fare evaders. I'm just trying to highlight that the notion of "ticketing makes money!" is inaccurate. I actually am a fan of the...

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

There's zero chance they keep any of the facade of the existing building, is there? It's not a killer loss from a preservation standpoint, and this project will be a net win for the area/city, but I...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I was pleasantly surprised by parking prices. They could be higher, but downtown Boston prices makes sense and should hopefully encourage people to take alternate transit options.

Also, I was in...

I wish it was across N. 2nd replacing the St. Anne's Credit Union building/parking lot, but this is a good development if it ever happens.

Thanks. That's what I thought too - Block 8 at Assembly is a $160 Million project with 500 units (https://cranshaw.com/portfolio-page/assembly-row-block-8/). Or $320k per unit. I can't imagine why it...
